    Abraham Palatnik (2 February 1928 – 9 May 2020) was a Brazilian abstract artist and inventor whose innovations include kinechromatic art. Palatnik was born in Natal, Rio Grande do Norte, and lived in Israel from 1932 to 1947 before settling in Rio de Janeiro, where he spent most of his adult life. He is considered a pioneer of technological art in Brazil for his early use of mechanical systems and light. He exhibited some of his works in the First Biennial of São Paulo in 1951. Two works by Palatnik are in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art.
